Dawson City: Frozen Time
This meditation on cinema’s past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

The Earth is Not a Spaceship
The Earth is not a spaceship is an experimental film that remixes vintage educational source footage collected by the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. A woman's voice narrates the film, functioning as a mother nature type character. The narration becomes haunting and robotic when coupled with glitchy film footage that has been rerecorded off of various digital screens. The reworking of the footage presents a new interpretation at the intersection of abstraction, the digital sublime, and an inconceivable dystopian existence. Various collisions emerge between the digital and physical world, raising questions about technology's ability to function as a surrogate for experiencing nature and the role that technology plays in our lives.
